    Kellie Stirling

    Midlife and Menopause are two transitions that often occur at the same time, although they are separate, they are also inextricably linked. Many of us fear this time in life because we have been told stories about all the terrible things that go wrong. What if you learned that it is the most transformational time in our lives as women; and that tending to ourselves and learning to listen to and trust the innate wisdom of our bodies, will support us to move through this time in life with grace and more ease. Midlife is the call to explore you. It is the Autumn season of our life where we have time to slow down, review, reflect and work out what we can let go of, what we can keep and where we need to focus our attention so that we can thrive in our second half of life. Midlife is the perfect time for this complex transition because we have the wisdom and perspective to really differentiate what is going on for us, with our deep life experience, we can begin to work out where we need to focus to thrive in our life.

    If you would like to explore the depth of midlife and menopause and learn how to set yourself up to live well in the second half, come join us.
